BOTOX® Cosmetic is a popular, non-surgical injection that softens horizontal forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles. Small amounts of BOTOX® injected directly into the muscles prevent them from moving and thus wrinkling your skin. Over time, deep expression lines fade and your face looks more youthful and refreshed. No two people who perform BOTOX® are the same; it’s important to find the right person to perform this procedure in order to create the most natural and attractive outcome.
Planning for BOTOX®
Planning your BOTOX® injections begins with an examination to determine which fillers/injectables are best for you. The best treatment is one that is personalized for your area of concern and anatomy. A price quote will be given during this time.
